God knows the big picture. The man I started dating 8 years ago, long before med school was in the picture, is disappearing before my very eyes. Are you going to keep the sabbath holy as a family, or is he going to take the kids out for pizza after church, leaving you home to observe alone. The church is very important to her. I respect all doctors so much, they go through hell to be where they are and put up with so much stuff at their work too. I would do it all over again and thank my lucky stars that I found this man, that he loves, and that I love him. Thanks again for the continued comments and replies to my edit. Do you know his work hours, break time during work and where does he take break from work. See to it that she is aware of your plan, so you both can properly dress. Sorry, but it just isn't worth it.
We have almost daily prayers, scripture reading, and lengthy discussions about our beliefs. I still love my Heavenly Father and my Savior. I am dating a wonderful man, amazing. Anecdotes vs a much larger sample size.
Sorry if I gave that impression. The Mormon church is certainly a time consuming church. I suppose it depends on your personality. My plan was to start school as soon as I got married but when he was told he would be going to another hospital, my masters got put on hold.
If you can live with some auxiliary authority in your life knowing that your wife will, as necessary, bend to its will instead of yours, you'll cross those bridges as you come to them. I mean, I get where it comes from but it's so ridiculous. If she identifies as a Mormon, then she probably takes her faith seriously, and it means a lot to her. BYU was once the perfect place to find a great young woman and get married. If she expresses interest in converting, be prepared to talk about your beliefs, and help her find ways to learn about and follow them. Sorry, your blog cannot share posts by email. I think my husband would do okay with the loneliness - just like I do. You will always be second place.
